Well, I've just finished installing my Windows 7. Its like a breath of fresh air to be back. Now, I just gotta run some updates and install some software. Then, everything should be running smoothly for me when I'm finished. I don't have anything against Windows 10. I guess, my desktop is not prepared or can't handle it. I'll just stick with Windows 7 until I'm forced to upgrade to something better

Anyone else having any issues with Windows 10? Do you like or dislike anything about it?
The same thing happened to my laptop last week. I applied the fix suggested by this webpage and it solved the problem

How to fix Windows 10 Start Menu | How to fix Windows 10 Cortana - How-To - PC Advisor

I have not experienced any other problems on my desktop and laptop.

I like windows 7 but considering the fact it will not be supported in a near future, and windows 10 bootup and shutdown much faster than windows 7, I will keep windows 10.

I understand that the start menu is not a big deal to some people. Its not a big deal to me if didn't work properly or not. I was able to figure out another way to shutdown my computer.
I've had Windows 10 on my desktop for like 2 or 3 months before I went back to Windows 7. I was gonna go back to Windows 7 after a week of having Windows 10. However, I figured I should keep W10 for a while and fool around with it. Maybe, the 2 or 3 months wasn't enough time.
Anyways, I may just buy W10 and that way I have it whenever I need it. I was thankful that I kept my W7. Otherwise, it may be difficult to go back to it.
